Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, private pool, mountain views, great for 2 families

NEW TO THE MARKET FOR 2017.

Newly renovated Tuscan house with extensive land, and private pool. 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, split into 2 apartments but let as one villa so ideal for two families or couples holidaying together but also requiring private space. Price of course includes both apartments with full privacy. WIFI

La Tenuta del Borghese is a newly renovated property is situated at the edge of the Garfagnana, but only 40 mins from Lucca, and well situated for a good choice of restaurants and eating out, with the closest good restaurant only a 3 minute drive away.

Situated in 2 hectares of land, including vineyards and olive trees, with mountain views this is the perfect place to relax from the stresses of day to day life…

 

The property is split into two self- contained 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartments so is ideal for two families wishing to holiday together, but with that all important privacy between you. The cottage is built into the hillside so whilst it is on two floors, both apartments are entered at ground level .

There are two individual eating areas too,  with plenty of space for the entire group to eat and drink together under the loggia, enjoying some respite from the sun and soaking up the view of the gardens, pool and stunning mountain backdrop.

The apartments have been sympathetically renovated using traditional materials where possible and boast traditional style flooring, chestnut windows and shutters, some exposed stonework, and in the upper apartment chestnut beamed ceilings.  The new kitchens have been designed with Tuscan Country style in mind, blending with modern requirements including fridge/freezers, dishwashers, ovens, hobs and traditional style stone sinks.

 

The living areas have TVs and DVD players and the apartments both have WIFI.

 

The bathrooms are up to date, boasting modern shower rooms, with the  downstairs apartment  having a bathtub too, which is ideal for those with smaller children, or for guests just liking a soak after a day sightseeing.

Outside there is the enormous garden, private pool, a choice of two eating areas for dining al fresco and for pre-dinner drinks, soaking up the peace and the vista. There are also 2 BBQ’s.

A little about the area:

This cottage is situated within a flat enclosed garden within 2 hectares of farmland, less than 40 min drive from Lucca. This is a really peaceful location, with far reaching country and mountain views, yet only a max 10 minute drive from the towns of Gallicano and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana with their shops, bars, restaurants and train stations....

​There are also a couple of good restaurants less than a minute drive away too ..

Great house in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended family vacation at this home for a week. The house was excellent, recently renovated and very nicely equipped. The two apartment structure is very practical to accommodate several people (in our case, two families). The swimming pool is large and extremely refreshing, and it was very nice to be in a property with its own vineyards, olive and fruit trees, and spice garden. The setting is beautiful, in the countryside but nearby to amazing sights and towns. It’s a great place to relax and disconnect and/or to explore the surrounding area (hiking, rafting, etc). A car is essential to get around. Overall a great experience and highly recommended.

NB - Access is via 200M of track road which can be steep and a little bumpy but which is fine in an ordinary car. There is also a narrow passway in village prior to arriving but we have passed it in a wide car with wing mirrors open and it was fine so long as you go slow.
